The police in the southern Lagos State of Nigeria have initiated an investigation into the untimely demise of the celebrated Nigerian rapper, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, famously known as MohBad, who tragically passed away in mid-September. Several individuals have been detained for interrogation, including the singer's industry colleagues.
The police have revealed that Feyisayo Ogedengbe, an unqualified nurse, who provided treatment to MohBad, is the prime suspect in his death. The woman is being accused of administering drugs with "professional negligence," as reported by the media.

"She is the main suspect in Mohbad's death," a Lagos police commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa told the press.

Owohunwa stated that the nurse was specifically invited to his home to provide medical treatment for the singer. According to the commissioner, the rapper received three injections from her, including antibiotics, which caused MohBad to vomit and have convulsions.

''Ogedengbe did not have the necessary qualification to carry out these procedures'', the outlet revealed, citing the police.

Furthermore, the commissioner emphasized the necessity of the treatment due to the late singer's injuries resulting from a clash with Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin, popularly known as Primeboy. This incident allegedly occurred a few days prior to MohBad's untimely demise, as reported by the media.

"The way the injuries were treated led to his death," the police were quoted by the media as saying.

The police command spokesperson announced that Nigerian singer Primeboy, who was a childhood friend of the late rapper, has been declared wanted. This decision was made because Primeboy failed to cooperate with the police and refused to appear to provide information regarding the circumstances of MohBad's passing. However, on Thursday, Primeboy surrendered to police and "was taken into custody for interrogation."

In regard to other individuals who were arrested in relation to MohBad's departure, the police have disclosed that on October 4th, the court ordered a 21-day remand for Naira Marley, the rapper's former manager, and Sam Larry, a dear friend and music promoter associated with his music label Marlians Record.
Although the two men denied their involvement in MohBad's death, the commissioner highlighted "a preponderance of evidence" linking them to "charges of death threats, cyberstalking and various crimes committed against MohBad during his lifetime," according to the outlet.
It is worth noting that the late Afrobeat star had a tense relationship with Marley. MohBad blamed the owner of the Marlians Record for organizing attacks on the late singer because he ended his collaboration with the label.
